Your Trusted Advisor in Real Estate Investing
Our bespoke services ensure that each client’s investment strategy is individually tailored to his/her unique situation. This carefully crafted approach ensures that the investment process is seamless, and that each client is set up for success by being supported every step of the way.
Learn How To Invest & Determine Your Strategy
Our extensive research and analysis of the Toronto real estate market culminates in our educational approach for clients. We have advised, coached, mentored, and taught real estate investing to 650+ investors of all levels - novice, intermediate, advanced. During our Advisory phase, we analyze each individual’s circumstance and provide solutions for the optimal way to reach their real estate investment goals, with a strong emphasis on “teach a man/woman to fish”.
Leverage Our Analysis Of Top Properties
As Investor Realtors, we help our clients find properties that fit the client’s investment strategy identified during the Advisory phase, typically under-valued, under-utilized properties in strong growth areas in Toronto. We pre-screen and pre-analyze all properties through our systematic due diligence to ensure that the financials are sound, and lead the client thru the investment property search process.
Create The Rent-Ready Apartments & Achieve Top Rents
If required, we help clients create value (also known as “Forced Appreciation”) through strategic, targeted tenant-grade renovations. Our interior design and construction management ensure that each apartment is fully optimized and budgets/timelines are strictly adhered to. By putting the entire property to highest-and-best use, the result is increased property value and increased rents.
Manage Your Investment Like A Business
Our systematic approach to leasing mitigates the risk of bad/professional tenants, ultimately reducing risk to your business. Property management allows our clients a hands-off approach while ensuring that their investment is operating in tip-top shape.
"We do a lot of investment properties, and you guys are one of the few teams out there that actually know what you're doing. When you send us a deal, the numbers actually makes sense. Versus someone saying 'My Realtor says I should pick this up... it COULD cashflow... MAYBE... if we get it to this level'. Then we struggle to find financing for someone who barely qualifies. So you guys do a really good job at finding REAL opportunities and making our job easier.
"Matthew Lee is a superstar. He's one of the big ones… he is a force of nature to watch. I've had the chance to work with him a few times, and his tenacity is pretty indicative of the guy he is.

Hi Matt, Ming and the Volition team,
I just wanted to say thank you for hosting the real estate event yesterday. It was well organized and Peter was amazing.
I look forward to attending the next one.
You guys inspire me because you have turned your passion of real estate into a career and vocation. This is 100% entrepreneurship
Matthew I have really enjoyed the coffeehouse web chats that you have put together. I find them very informative and a great way to stay connected if meeting in person doesn’t work. The change to the evening , however, has meant that I cannot attend them, which is a real disappointment for me. Is it ridiculous for me to ask if an audio copy can be made of the events and sent out? It would at the very least allow me to hear all the great information that is coming out of your expert network, even if I can’t participate.
Its Eng here, Andrew & I really enjoyed the Volition tour this past weekend with Matt and Ed/Sam. It was impressive to see how to do a Triplex conversion and the possibilities it can bring along with it. You guys had a great turn out and lots of good questions and discussions from the groups
We offer personalized coaching, networking events and curated educational resources
- River & Fifth (Queen & River) May 22, 2019 EXECUTIVE SUMMARY: WHAT IS SO SPECIAL ABOUT THIS PARTICULAR CONDO PROJECT? BEST SUITED FOR OWN USE. While the area and location is amazing, and while there are tons of infrastructure developments going on in the area (East Harbour, Google Smart City, etc.), this does NOT fit our traditional cashflow business model, and thus is most suitable for owner’s own use / end users. LARGE UPSIDE POTENTIAL. Although it’s not our traditional cashflow business model, we still believe in the area and the upside growth potential of this development, the business model is ...

- July 17, 2019 – Learn to be a developer! July 20, 2019 When people think about development, they think of it as something reserved for rich, well-connected people. They envision high-rise condos, large commercial projects, or huge sub-divisions. This isn’t reality. Development can be as simple as splitting a large lot or building purpose rental homes. Most importantly, development is something the average person can work towards! What is reality is that development isn’t easy to learn – there are no courses, no books and certainly no seminars on development. The only way to learn is from someone else and most people don’t know someone who is a developer within their ...
